This is the letter from the Swedish Data Inspection Board. They were kind enough to reply in English 🙂

The Swedish Data Inspection Board has received your complaint.

The Swedish Data Inspection Board is supervisory authority according to the Personal Data Act (1998:204). There is a possibility for websites to apply for impediment to publication (utgivningsbevis). If a website is granted impediment to publication (e.g. ratsit.se) the website will be protected according to constitutional law. That means that the Personal Data Act is not applicable on information that is posted at such websites.

The Swedish Data Inspection Board is therefore unable to help you in this matter. It is legal for ratsit.se to publish your personal information. Ratsit.se is not obliged to remove your information.

For more information about utgivningsbevis, see The Swedish Broadcasting Authority’s website: http://www.radioochtv.se/en/Licensing/Internet/.

The Swedish Data Inspection Board notes with regularity the problems with utgivningsbevis to the Ministry of Justice. You can read more about it here:

Are there any Swedish lawyers out there that can help me fix this?
